About Me

I specialize in an area of medicine called physical medicine and rehabilitation. This means I help patients recover function that they have lost due to a variety of injuries and diseases including stroke and traumatic brain injury.

Doing what I can to help patients return to their family and lives after these potentially life-altering brain injuries is extremely rewarding.

The thing I enjoy most about working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is collaborating every day with fantastic physicians, nurses and therapists to help our patients recover and gain function as quickly and safely as possible. This team approach to patient care is not only great for patients, but also makes coming to work enjoyable.

Went over alternatives to medication that he could prescribe for my current problem. Chose the one he felt that would be best and had me schedule a follow-up appointment to discuss if we needed to make changes.
